Title: Measurement of Body-Centered-Cubic Aluminum at 475 GPa [Observation of Body-Centered-Cubic Aluminum at 475 GPa]

Abstract

Nanosecond in situ x-ray diffraction and simultaneous velocimetry measurements were used to determine the crystal structure and pressure, respectively, of ramp compressed aluminum at stress states between 111 and 475 GPa. The solid-solid Al phase transformations, fcc-hcp and hcp-bcc, are observed at 216 ± 9 GPa and 321 ± 12 GPa, respectively, with the bcc phase persisting to 475 GPa. Here, this is the first in situ observation of the high-pressure bcc phase of Al. High-pressure texture of the hcp and bcc phases suggests close-packed or nearly close-packed lattice planes remain parallel through both transformations.
